I just got mine and I love them! I got the cognac color, it looks a little darker in person but I almost like it better than the picture. The size fits perfectly. For people who have had trouble getting their foot past the heel; a woman at a shoe store told me when you first get a boot like this you need to use a plastic bag to slip your foot in initially, and that you should wear them around the house for a bit to wear them in. It worked great for me!

I purchased a pair of knee high Frye boots after being recommended by someone who wears Frye for everything including horseback riding competitions. I loved them when I received them and although they felt a little small in the ball of my foot, I wore them. They did become more comfortable and shape to my feet. After about 10 months the heels began to show serious wear. At about 11 months the heel binding completely ripped and they are no longer wearable. I am so disappointed! I never thought that boots that cost this much would fall apart so quickly. I have had many other leather boots from other companies and have kept them for years, getting minor repairs done. These were the most expensive pair and the fastest to fall apart even though I wore them no more than once a week. I have returned them (because Zappos is awesome) and I will look for a new pair of boots, from another company.

These are beautiful boots, a little narrow, so if you have a wide foot, beware. I own an older pair of Frye boots and had no hesitation ordering these based on the quality of my other pair. However, with these, the heel began to come apart from the sole after only one season of wear. I wore them no more than once or 2 times a week for 5 months, and I'm not hard on shoes or a big person. I felt so disappointed. It had been more than one year after I ordered them from Zappos so I didn't know if they would work with me. But, I called anyway. Customer service was awesome. This is why I love Zappos. They allowed me to return the boots and choose another brand. Long story short - I think Frye makes a good boot, and maybe the materials used on this model were defective.

These boots are beautiful! However...they are definitely darker (some red looking colors). I have athletic calves (not huge, but muscular) and I was convinced from reviews that they would fit. Sadly, between my high arches and wider calves, I couldn't get these boots on. I'm not returning because my mom tried them on and wants them. I wish they had a wide calf option for this style.

Frye Shirley Riding Plate in Black Smooth Full Grain Leather 6½M - Pretty, but the leather was very stiff and formal and looked like it would crack if bent while walking. Although I think the circumference was about 14¾", I could not get my high-arched feet to make the angle and sit flat inside the footbed. A classic look for the right chick, though. Thanks for making the return easy, Zappos.

Beautiful boots! A bit darker than the picture. I wanted a lighter color so I am returning but already ordered the copper! Cant wait for decent weather to wear them! They do feel a bit narrow but I have a feeling that they will expand as the leather gets worn in a bit. I plan to wear thinner socks til they do. This is my first pair of quality leather boots and I am so happy with them.
